Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson have split after two years of marriage, it has been confirmed.
“After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated,” the fiercely-private couple said in a joint statement.
A source told US Weekly that the pair split two weeks ago, and that distance was a major factor in the downfall of their marriage.
“The big problem with their relationship is the distance,” says the source. “They spent a lot of time apart when they are working…She’s been unhappy for a while.”
Johannson, 26, began dating Reynolds, 34, in 2007, and got hitched during a private ceremony in a remote wilderness retreat in Vancouver in 2008.
Iron Man 2 star Johansson dished about her marriage to InStyle magazine earlier this year.
“You’re married and suddenly you have your own family,” she said. “There’s a nice comfort in that. That part of your life is certain, in a way. You’ve got your home in that other person.”
